The Falcons offense was a high-powered machine when it had Tony Gonzalez catching 80-90 passes alongside the top-15 fantasy production of receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones. Tamme is the first veteran option with true move-TE skills in Atlanta since Gonzalez retired. The Falcons offense will use the H-Back enough that Tamme could have 60-catch upside in Kyle Shanahan's scheme.

Summary

Super-sized Levine Toilolo is a huge (6' 8", 260 pounds) tight end who showed a knack in the red-zone on limited touches during 2013. However, his 2014 season was a disappointment in fantasy terms (51 targets for 31/238/2) as he was asked to stay in and block with the struggling Atlanta offensive line for much of the year. During 2015 free agency the Falcons signed Jacob Tamme, late of Denver, who had his best season as a receiver in Indianapolis during 2010 (67/631/4 receiving) - he got a two-year deal from Atlanta back in March. Tamme may challenge Toilolo for the starting job during training camp, and Tamme appears to be the better hope for fantasy production from the tight end position entering 2015. This is a situation that bears watching during the 2015 training camp/preseason. (May 14)
